More Information

This shrub has two growth forms: a small tree up to 20′ tall with a trunk up to 6 inches across, or a thicket of little-branched woody stems up to 8′ tall. An older tree develops gray flaking bark on its trunk, while the trunk bark of younger trees is gray and more smooth. Woody branches and slender stems are variably colored, but often gray or yellowish-brown and smooth. The alternate leaves are up to 5 inches long and 1/2 inch across; they are linear in shape and remotely denticulate along their margins. Mature leaves are usually hairless; their upper surfaces are medium green, while their lower surfaces are pale green.
